Havalur is an all-natural, sugar free Icelandic craft beer brewed by Stedji Brewery since 2012. It’s said to have the taste profile of a porter with hints of caramel and a smoky, almost meaty aftertaste. YUM!!
Of course, it’s all in the brewing process. A process that involves a 15-18 pound whale testicle that brewers describe as “the size of a basketball for a troll.” Oh, and with no trees on this giant volcanic island, they use dry sheep’s dung to smoke the whale testicle for an extended period, to give the beer its unique, smoky taste.
Typically brewed for the Thorii festival, celebrating the old Norse gods and Icelandic traditions, you can head to the remote brewery tasting room where and can sample a flight of five beers for USD $14.
